Abstract:

A 10 x 10 diallel analysis in F1 generation excluding reciprocals in sponge gourd [Luffa cylindrica (Roem.) L.] was carried out to identify good combiners and best combinations along with its heterotic effect. Mean square due to GCA and SCA were significant indicated that both additive and non-additive type of gene effects played an important role in the inheritance of all these traits under studied with preponderance of non-additive gene action for all the traits except fruit length. Parents Pusa Chikni, ASGS 08-37, ASGS 06-30 and JSG 05-7 were found to be the good general combiners for fruit yield and some of the yield contributing characters, whereas, parents ASGS 08-39 was found to be good combiner for earliness and ten fruit weight. The three cross combinations viz., Pusha chikni X ASGS 08-37, ASGS 08-37 x ASGS 08-39 and ASGS 08-40 x JSG 05-4 were found to be good specific combiners for fruit yield per vine and would be exploited for heterosis breeding in sponge gourd.
